Erie, PA-Eriez® introduces the EP-Rex(TM) Scrap Drum, a new, hybrid scrap drum offering many of the same benefits as the popular Eriez P-Rex® Scrap Drum at a lower cost.

The electro-permanent EP-Rex Scrap Drum offers greater strength than traditional electro-axial drums, bringing improved profits to scrap recycling operations. Large sphere-shaped ferrous, often referred to as meatballs or knuckles, are no match for the incredibly powerful EP-Rex Scrap Drum.

Much like the P-Rex, the EP-Rex offers advantages in critical performance areas: superior edge-to-edge separation, no 'transfer point' drop in magnetic force and no decline in performance due to heat rise. "Eriez is setting a new standard in scrap drums," says Darrell Milton, Market Manager-Metals Recycling. "Processors' profits are no longer limited by inferior metal recovery systems. Eriez drums provide better performance and payback than ever before thought possible."

Mike Ross, Manager-Magnet Development, explains that EP-Rex was invented based on customer need and current market conditions. He says, "P-Rex opened users' eyes to the realization that a stronger and consistent strength drum provides better recovery than the traditional electro-axial drums. Then, with the recent volatility in rare earth minerals pricing, our customers requested a stronger magnet that did not require rare earth magnets as an option. With a lot of research and the help of computer finite element analysis, robotics, numeric-controlled machines and laser-guided coil winding, EP-Rex was developed."

EP-Rex will be officially introduced at the ISRI 2012 Convention and Exhibition. For more information, contact Eriez.
